More Monochrome-Someone Stop Me!!!

Morning and we have a new challenge at Crafting From The Heart and we are sponsored by Createful Heart Digis and I used Flowerpatch Butterfly.Now someone stop me as I am stuck in monochrome mode aaaahhhh!This came about because my papers didn't seem to compliment the image-sooo went black and white.Cardstock from Papermill Direct,embossing folders on the black card from Tattered Lace,Marianne,Creative Dies and craft mag freebie,promarkers and ribbon from stash.

  1. What a cute fruity veg monster made by grandad, no wonder it won first prize, so cute, love the nose.
    Carol, lovely card and image too.
    When I print on tissue paper I get mine from the office works place, use double sided tape and tape it onto my A4 paper that way it will print and not jam up...mine never has jammed up.xx Hope that helps. [aNNie]
